DIRCOTE (Dirección Contral el Terrorismo, or Directorate Against Terrorism in English) is a Directorate within the Peruvian Police force in charge of fighting terrorism in that country. It emerged in 1983 as the result of government measures to stop increasing terrorist activities (mainly from guerrilla groups, but also form paramilitary groups as well). The first name was Dirección Regional Contra el Terrorismo, then it changed its name to Dirección Nacional Contra el Terrorismo (DINCOTE) and it is finally called Dirección Contra el Terrorismo, as it is known today.

Description of the flag

The flag is the coat of arms on a black background, plus two Peruvian Coats of Arms (one on the right and one on the left, in golden outline), plus the word "DIRECCION" below the Peruvian Coats of Arms.
